Parenthood Keeps Diseases At Bay’



London: Those who have two children are likely to be more healthier than their counterparts who are childless or have one kid, a new study has found.

The international research on 1.5 million people found that becoming a mother or father reduces the risk of serious health conditions such as cancer, heart disease or becoming an alcoholic.

But the benefits were only clear for men and women who had two children and those with one child, or none at all, were at increased risk of death from almost all the conditions studied, perhaps because they were less likely to look after their health, the study found.

The research also discovered that two children were optimum in terms of parents’ health and those with larger families have a higher risk of suffering from many diseases, perhaps because they had to cope with the stresses of looking after several kids.

“Four-plus children might have adverse effects arising from stress, socio-economic disadvantages and lifestyles, offsetting or even outweighing social benefits of parenthood,” said lead researcher Emily Grundy of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. PTI

Well, I wish I could post such stories on discuss board. But it would be against the policy of my organisation -- The Press Trust of India, the country's premier news agency.

You might have read my other stories too. Mr Vohra knows it better.

Cheers!

Choice is between "to remain alcoholic" OR "get divorced" :-)

Hi, for your information, there is another story on the topic in today's TOI. See the Trend section.

I am pasting below the first two para of my story, rest you can refer to TOI or Google.

Parents of twins 'more likely to divorce':study
London, Mar 16 (PTI) Couples with twins are four times
more likely to separate compared to others, a new study has
found.
According to the study titled "The effects of twins and
multiple births, families and their living standards", 28 per
cent of parents of twins or triplets separated or divorced,
compared with 24 per cent of other families.



Cheers!

@shival : do u have twins?
Nice thoughts Shival ji.... What do u mean by 'remain alchoholic'? LOL....
I guess u assuming all r already alchoholic..... ;)
hahaha...no i don't have twins...i just have one kid who just turned 3.

I was actually relating both the articles-
As per first article - If one kid is there, its not good for health, you can become alcoholic.
As per second article - If plan for 2nd child, and u get twins, then chances of divorce are there.

So I was wondering between the 2 risky choices..... :-)

ha ha ha...... Ya its really very risky.... n gr8 thoughts Shival... hmmmmm ,u made me think on this:):):)
Ya i also agree with Mr. Sumit vohra. I was also waiting for my child to get admitted in a good achool, then plan for the second one
@Saroj: i have left my e mail id in ur inbox.plz check
Kudos to you Saroj...a lovely article....i read this on TOI and then Shaena posted it....But you made us confused...to try or not to try the second [f the result comes out TWINS :-)]........ha ha ha ha ha ha
yes , it is right to have 2 kids not because of this criteria but because of 2 kids ur child learn to share and care. and he doesnt feel like alone ..and doesnt depend on children outside the home for playing games ..elder one is always there for his younger sis or broth.
